7 points to check before purchasing a premium plugin
#1. Check reviews & all associated trust factors
It’s really vital when you are purchasing a premium WordPress plugin. Not just plugin it’s equally true for every product.
So before purchasing the plugin search everywhere what existing users are saying about it.
Not just the plugin repository of WordPress, with this you have to also check the main marketplace/ site of the plugin & review section of there.
You can also check all the third-party Forums, Blogs & review sites regarding what the people are talking about it. At first be assured then decide.
#2. Don’t take the demo lightly
Whenever you are purchasing a plugin you should also check the demo version of that to get an actual feel of it. So checking the demo end to end is really important!
It gives you an insider view of a plugin regarding what you will get & how much you will get among all features in a particular price.
#3. Read all Terms & Conditions
Yes Terms & Conditions are such things which you should never avoid to check properly. Properly means as much as you can or understand, beyond that you can always discuss with the concerned person from the support team.
#4. Match all your requirements with feature list
What you want & in a specific price/ in free how much you are getting that’s the biggest thing which you need to check properly.
Otherwise you will found that, out of excitement the version you have purchased, that’s not sufficing your requirement. So this phase is really crucial.
#5. Check the pricing model in detail
Many plugins come as totally free, some with freemium model & the other one is premium plugins.
So whenever you are going to purchase any of the premium ones, check very minutely about every nitty-gritty details of pricing & packages.
If you don’t do this properly then after purchasing you will find that the package you have purchased, all of your required features are not there or the support you wanted is not included in that package.
To opt all these you have to purchase a higher package.
So, got my point?
#6. If necessary then talk with their support team
At first go for a DIY approach after that checking as much as you can from your end, if there still any query (s) remain you can connect with the plugin’s support team.
Until & unless all of your questions get sorted out, never ever proceed for purchase. It’s the rule of thumb.
#7. Finally use the trial version if possible in test site
If the plugin comes with a free trial period then nothing can be better than that. So download & install that Trial version in a test site & check all its features/ functionalities from inside out.
If you find everything ok then only take it forward.
